Exhibiting Artist: Tommy Fiendish
London based artist Thomas D Wright aka Tommy Fiendish draws from a background in street art, tattooing and typography which are evident amongst the layers within his modern baroque paintings. Often experimental, Wright uses skills from past work as a sign writer and mural artist in addition to his primary medium of acrylic on linen to create thought provoking, darkly romantic and evocative works.
Observations on daily contemporary living, investigative research and self- expression appear throughout the work and since 2020, conflicts between the engines of science and religion. Wright’s paintings frequently reference vintage imagery, placing them in contemporary paradoxical situations, often with a twist of macabre drollery.
